As a regular visitor to Porthleven I think I have a good idea of where to eat & where not to. I have read reports regarding Moonflower & working on the theory that every one is entitled to their own opinion, fine. I must have had at least 6 take aways from here in the past 4 years & have... More

We went for a celebration meal. Starter crispy duck was like nothing I had tasted before. Do better myself at home. Main dishes tasted mostly of salt. Would never think of going back. I feel sick when I now pass the restaurant. No sign of anything Chinese about this place. A bit of a joke really.

Our family have Chinese once or twice aweek so we are very critical when it comes to this type of takeout. They deliver which is really good but that is really all I can say it was not the best very dry and below standard im sorry to say.

Came into the restaurant and had one of the best meals ever. Surprised why there are any bad reviews. Food was cheap for the portion size and tasted great. Would highly recommend anyone to go there. I personally loved the garlic chips and also the black bean sauce. Staff were friendly and attentive.

We come here every time we visit Porthleven. This time we had the king prawn curry, chicken chow mein, and the crispy shredded beef. All cooked well and tasted great. The only downside was the girls on the counter were more interested in checking their Facebook profiles than serving, and there was a lot of shouting coming from the back... More

Spent nearly £100 on food for a takeaway for a group of us and it was very late, then dreadful food. Terrible attitude of the staff and very very disappointing. Plenty of lovely places to eat in the area, go to one of those instead.

Had a takeaway last night for 8 people. Food was bland and disappointing. Unfortunately they have a monopoly because not many Chinese or Indian takeaways in porthleven but we won't be going again

Another trip to Moonflower after visiting several times over the last few years during holidays to Porthleven. We talk at home about Moonflowers salt and chilli ribs so were really looking forward to them. Sadly they aren't quite what they used to be, in that you can eat them without them melting the insides of your mouth - which sadly... More

We went to the chippy first but they had no fish left so we tried this place instead and ordered the sweet and sour chicken and pork - my partner thought he had ordered the balls for both but we only received chicken balls and the pork was cantonese style. The food took a long time but was good.
